Retreats, Colds and Creating

Back from my retreat to the Alabama mountains at Camp Sumatonga. The first thing I do each time after unpacking is to take a picture out the front door of my room. I have the same room each time so it gives me a sense of the changing seasons. 

When I arrived Monday afternoon it was sunny and 70 degrees. A beautiful day indeed.Tuesday was cold and rainy and I had to run between my room and the dining hall/worship building several times. Resulting in a cold/bronchitis. The people coughing on the plane probably helped some too. LOL Note to self: wear a mask on plane next time.

The retreat was a blessing. The first presenter gave us some really good meditations. One has me still wrestling with God. 

Because of the bronchitis I have been exhausted, sleeping and vegetating, which equals nothing accomplished. Yesterday morning I bit the bullet and went to the doctor. After a breathing treatment in her office and some meds I was feeling more energy and desiring to create something so I pulled fabric for some Easter projects. 

That bunny fabric is so cute. I thought I would make an extra long table runner since I had purchased two yards. After ironing and checking several times to make sure (I thought I made sure) not to cut a fold, I ended up cutting it wrong. :O Bummer. 

Exhausted and frustrated I decided to vegetate some more and turned on the TV.

Today is much better and I have been resting so I can hopefully accomplish something tomorrow. My sister is coming and I still have not cleaned off the piles of fabric from the spare bed. 

Has the flu/cold bug bitten you this season? Do you get flu shots each year?
